Jonas is a twelve year old member of the community.  He is of average size, because no one stands out in the community.  However he does have light colored eyes, gray eyes, and these are very rare.  Other than that, he physically resembles the others. Jonas's personality traits do make him unique.  During the ceremony of twelve, Jonas is described as having intelligence, integrity, courage, and the capacity to see beyond.  Jonas can see colors where others cannot.  He also realizes that he is different from others.  When he begins his training, he demonstrates all of the traits the elders seemed to think he had.
